at work

While many organizations have implemented LGBTQ+ inclusive policies and protections, roughly 46% of LGBTQ+ employees stay in the closet due to a culture of bias in the workplace and/or perceived lack of support. QEDU provides professional development services to highlight federal and state-mandated protections while offering audiences an inside look at concepts of LGBTQ+ identity. We review affirmative language strategies, how to ask questions, and tips for harassment prevention and intervention. Contact us to learn more.
